Welcoming and comfortable hair and makeup trial

I was very nervous and apprehensive heading into the trial but as soon as I stepped in the door I was greeted by a warm welcoming smile (and an adorable fluffy companion). I got to try out a couple of different eye looks and Fai repeatedly checked if I wanted to change or adapt anything. However, She managed to achieve the look I was going for straight away so no changes were needed. We then moved onto hair. As I haven’t picked out my dress yet, I thought I would try out an updo today as I tend to wear my hair down, so wanted to try something different. Again, Fai listened to what I wanted and gave me a hairstyle that matched beautifully. Overall it was a lovely experience and I am so glad I booked a trial as it has taken away stress and nerves of not knowing how I will look on the big day. Can’t wait to take my bridal party back for their trials :)

Friendly, flexibly and just so talented

I was really anxious about getting my hair and makeup done for my wedding, its not something I've ever done before but Fai was just so friendly and approachable, she was so flexible with the makeup if I changed my mind or had any tweaks I wanted to make. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and its all thanks to her beautiful skill and for making me feel so comfortable.
From the very start when we were first talking over Hitched Fai was friendly, informative and it just felt right! I had some last minute changes to my bridal party and Fai was so understanding to the change of circumstances.
Thank you Fai, all our guests commented on how lovely I looked and all the little girls called me a princess. I wish I could look that beautiful every day!
I also need to mention she made my mum look so beautiful too! My whole bridal party was so perfect thanks to Fai

Absolutely incredible!

Fai was just absolutely amazing! Can’t recommend her highly enough, so professional from start to finish and honestly felt like part of the family trying to help me calm down before my big day! Make up looked absolutely stunning I felt so confident and it held the entire night. Friendly, professional and just incredible make up. Would highly recommend if you want to have someone awesome make you feel beautiful for any occasion but especially your big day!

Large wedding group - all perfect

We were a large group of: 5 bridesmaids (of different nationalities), a bride, a flower girl and mother of the bride, and every single one of us loved our hair and make up. I had the most amazing wedding, I was worried that it would start looking dry or cakey around my t-zone but it remained perfect (even when I woke the next morning). And I changed how I wanted my hair 3 days before and it was no stress at all. Fai also dyed and cut my hair before the wedding. I would recommend her to everyone! And for London, her prices are incredibly good.

Me but elevated

I absolutely loved having Fai do my hair and make up, I felt like myself but elevated which was exactly what I wanted. I never wear my hair up but when I tried on my wedding dress I felt like I needed it up but just worried I wouldn’t feel confident. Fai was so lovely I got on with her so well, she made me feel absolutely gorgeous and all of my braids maids looked so stunning with a soft glam look

Fai created some serious magic for mine and my bridal party’s hair.

I’m so happy that I was lucky enough to book Fai for my bridal hair! I honestly couldn’t be happier with how mine and my bridesmaids’ hair turned out. She was also such a pleasure to have around too. Added bonus! :D

Would highly recommend!

Fai did the hair and make up for my mother and bridemaid. Plus my bridal hair and make up and a flower girls hair. She was absolutely FANTASTIC. At the trial she really listened to what I wanted, liked and then was able to share what would work and wouldn’t! On the morning, she turned up on time, raring to go, calm and put us all at total ease. We all were so delighted with her work- she’s brilliant at what she does. My hair and make up were perfect- I have never felt so happy with my look and everyone raved at how lovely I looked. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Fai - she will make you and your bridal party look and feel AMAZING!

Excellent bridal hair & makeup

I’d highly recommend booking Fai. Fai did a superb job for my hair and makeup for my wedding, as well as my mum’s hair and makeup. I was delighted with how it turned out. The hair and makeup lasted all day! Both looked great for the whole 12 hours. I love Fai’s style which is to create a look you’re comfortable with so you still feel like yourself.

To find someone who excels in both hairstyling and makeup isn’t easy. The fact Fai did both made the trial and the day much easier to plan. Fai is warm and friendly and a pleasure to be around. Thanks so much, Fai!

Couldn't recommend enough

Fai was fantastic, she kept everyone calm and at no point did she rush anyone despite us running a little late. Her presence was such a relaxing addition to the day. Couldn't recommend her enough.

Thank you Fai

Fai was amazing, not just the hair and make-up but she is just the kind of person you need around the morning of your wedding. My mum and I, were put so at ease with her, she even stepped in at short notice to do the hair of my bridesmaid.
I cant reccommend Fai enough. My makeup and hair looked beautiful and photographed fantasically. My hair even held up with (sideways) rain and wind on the albert bridge.

Amazing from start to finish!!

Fai was just awesome from start to finish - she was quick to respond when I first enquired and has been super flexible and responsive ever since. She was great at offering suggestions whilst also taking into account my own ideas. She was really eager for us to get it right on the trial and was happy to try multiple hair styles so I could choose what would make me feel best. My hair and make up held all day on the wedding day (which it doesn’t normally) and people were commenting all day on how good it looked. Fai made me feel relaxed, confident and beautiful - I couldn’t recommend her enough!

Fai was fantastic in every way!

Fai did an amazing job and I was really pleased with the look she created for me. She made me feel at ease and was great fun!

We have some fantastic memories of our wedding day and I will be forever grateful for the part she played in making the day so special.

I'm sure I will be tapping her up for makeup lessons in future!
